With more and more of our users moving into the beginning phases of research for senior theses and large research projects, building and maintaining a relationship with advisors for these projects is more important now than ever. So this week, we at Project Lever are going to give you some insight into how to best navigate this process, through interviews we’ve conducted of successful student researchers and faculty advisors, and an in-depth guide to using our platform to find the best advisor for you. The content for this week will be as follows:
